Thank you for visiting my "MG Walk" personal fundraising page!
My Name is Kim Evans and Supporting the MG walk is very personal for me.
Five years ago this month I married the most amazing man in the world. Nine days later our whole world seemed to turn upside down. I was diagnosed with a very rare cancer called Thymoma (Cancer of the Thymus gland). The cancer was at stage 4 and my entire left chest cavity was full of mass.
About a week later it was announced to me by my oncologist that I had tested positive with antibodies associated with a very rare autoimmune disease called Myasthenia Gravis which is a secondary condition related to the cancer I was just diagnosed with. I had had symptoms of MG for over a year prior to being diagnosed. I saw a few Doctor's about those symptoms, it was diagnosed as lock jaw, to much stress and even a possible stroke. None of those things seemed right to me. Living with Myasthenia Gravis can be very debilitating and frustrating at times and I am committed to my wellness and helping others.
I am excited to be supporting the Myasthenia Gravis Foundation of America (MGFA) through the MG Walk. The MGFA is the only national volunteer health agency in the United States dedicated solely to the fight against myasthenia gravis.
MGFA is committed to finding a cure for myasthenia gravis and closely related disorders, improving treatment options, and providing information and support to people with myasthenia gravis through research, education, community programs, and advocacy.
